Botswana President Mokgweetsi Masisi is expected to pay a working visit to Malawi on Monday at the invitation of his Malawian counterpart, President Lazarus Chakwera.
During the working visit, the two Southern African presidents will exchange views on bilateral and regional issues of mutual interests, including potential areas of co-operation between Botswana and Malawi, said the Botswanan Ministry of International Affairs and Co-operation last Friday.
President Masisi will use the opportunity to solicit support for Botswana’s candidate Elias Magosi for the position of Executive Secretary of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), according to the media release.
Over the years, the two SADC members have benefitted from a cooperation agenda that has facilitated collaboration in various areas such as education and training in defence and security, the release said.
President Masisi and his entourage, which will include Minister of International Affairs and Co-operation, Lemogang Kwape, will return the same day.
